A Message from Roderick Bailey and The Silly Goose
August 23rd, 2008: I came to Nashville — totally broken, scared, faithless, and hopeless.
October 13th, 2009: I opened The Silly Goose with no money, no reputation, a George Foreman Grill, a bandana, and several sharpies. I had found hope in the previous year, faith in something to hold onto, and a chance at a new life. Truly a miracle.
The last six years have been beyond anything I could have possibly fathomed.
To all the people I have worked with- THANK YOU. You have been my family, my support, the best friends I've ever had. I'm so grateful for you all. I love you and I am so proud of you.
You have all been part of true magic—way beyond the sum of our individual selfs. You helped me create a place where love and kindness came first and because of that, we made some fantastic food together.
To all of you who came to eat with us over the last six years—thank you. I hope you felt the love in our food, our music, and the way we treated you.
Life is messy and so is the restaurant business. The Silly Goose took everything I had every day. It was hard, rewarding, beautiful in all its imperfections.
I have no idea what the universe has planned for me next. I have faith and hope and I am filled with gratitude for what the Silly Goose and the last six years have been.
THANK YOU All.
